There are many, many weapons in Cyberpunk 2077. The most special of these are called Iconic weapons: unique, custom weapons that are a step above the ones you’ll find on any old corpse. These come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but none is as distinctive and full of personality as Skippy, the talking smart pistol.
Ostensibly based on Microsoft’s Clippy, the pop-up paperclip that used to help us with Word documents, Skippy is an AI-operated smart pistol. A shot from a smart gun will automatically seek targets mid-air, which is as useful as it sounds. Normally, you need cyberware in your hands that will enable you to use smart weapons; however, a major advantage to Skippy is that it doesn’t require cyberware to use.
To find Skippy, head to a back alley in the Glen, southeast of Corpo Plaza. See the map in the image below to pinpoint the area.
Skippy is a unique weapon for a lot of reasons, the least of which is the waived cyberware requirement. Skippy offers a choice between automatic headshots or nonlethal limb shots, the latter of which is called “Puppy Loving Pacifist mode.” It’ll also jam from time to time, prompting Skippy to make a comment about how this has never happened before–if you know, you know.
Skippy is one of an assortment of Iconic weapons available in Cyberpunk 2077.
